I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I wanted to try waste canvas. It is a big pain in the butt but I definitely want to use it some more. LOL! I did this cameo on my sweater.
Some of the stitching came out wonky because the pattern on the waste canvas is hard to follow.

Beautiful!  That's really a fanstastic use of needlework.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

You get mad skillz points for this one. I hate me some waste canvas... and on such a delicate looking (and no doubt stretchy) sweater.

Wow!

What a sweet design and the color combo really gives it a vintage feeling.  I love this idea.  Never tried waste canvas, but I might have to now.

I think it is beautiful! So feminine and perfect.
I will admit to knowing NOTHING about waste canvas, but if it can help do stuff like this, I will have to learn.
